Wiring Confusion - How do I connect brake light module?
I purchased a Smart Braking Module to install on my rebel. I noticed that I do the majority of my slowing down through engine braking since the rebel engine is pretty small and decelerates pretty quickly. The module has an accelerometer, and it detects when you slow down to flash the brake lights for you. Simple and easy, right? Well……
When I took the rear and front seat off, I could not find the right wires for the life of me. I was supposed to find the wires that go to the brake light, and connect the module to the wires via these plastic looking wire clamps (see photo below). On the installation paper for the module, it says to connect the module to these color wires:
For Honda, it says:
Connect the Power wire on module to Brown/White wire.
Connect the Signal wire on module to Green/Red wire.
Connect the Ground wire on module to Green wire.
I could not find this connection for the life of me. I pulled up the wire diagram for my motorcycle (see photo below) and tried to match it to the motorcycle. I saw the blue wire for right turn signal, but I didn’t see the yellow wire for the left turn signal. I didn’t need either of those now (although I will when I install my rear turn signals this weekend), so I moved on.
I saw a green and yellow wire, two orangeish/brown wires (pretty dirty), a few black wires, and a dark brown/redish wire. I was totally confused and didn’t know how to connect the module, so I just put everything back together and left it.
How can I connect the module? What wires should it go to?
Also, when I looked underneath the rear fender, I saw a dark wire (they were all super dark from dirt) that was disconnected/frayed. No idea what that was for, but my brake light works fine currently.
Also, pretty worried about how I’ll connect my turn signals this weekend since I couldn’t find the yellow left turn signal wire…
